Latest commit 5148cde Aug 19, 2013 Morten Langlo committed with Update MPD RSound patch.


This package provides two programs.

rsd        -   The server which PCM data is streamed to over TCP/IP or Unix domain sockets, 
               sound is played back with a low latency depending on what backend is used.
               It supports several connections to be played back at the same time.

rsdplay    -   The client which streams PCM data recieved from stdin to a rsoundserv.
               The code in rsdplay is mostly for reference.

For integration with applications, librsound can be used.

The package compiles and runs on the following platforms:

Unix-like                  - ALSA (Linux), OSS, libao, PortAudio, PulseAudio, 
                             µRoar, OpenAL, RoarAudio VS, Jack
Microsoft Windows (Cygwin) - PortAudio, (OSS), libao, OpenAL
                  (Win32)  - DirectSound, µRoar
Mac OSX                    - libao (possibly more)

On how to use these programs, refer to the --help in the respective programs, or the man-pages.
